What Our Young People Say About Us

The teachers actually cared about me. 'A few years ago I never would have dreamt of becoming a nurse. Now I want to be able to help others grow as well.

Jessica Powell

When they were writing out my plan they asked me what I wanted to do. They don't say, 'This might be good for youth's very much about what you want to do.

Zoe B

They make you feel comfortable, that's something I like. Obviously, if they can help you get a job that's good too - which they did!
